Arnone, DiRocco to serve county leadership roles in 2023
Monmouth County Commissioner Thomas A. Arnone and Commissioner Nick DiRocco were appointed as director and deputy director, respectively, at the Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners’ 2023 organization meeting held on Jan. 5 at Biotechnology High School, Freehold Township.
“It is truly an honor to be given the opportunity to serve as a Monmouth County commissioner for my fifth term and to be elected by my colleagues to continue in my role as director,” Arnone was quoted as saying in a press release.
“I am grateful my colleagues have appointed me to continue serving in this role. However, this is a team position and I look forward to serving alongside a great hardworking group of individuals to continue to provide a high quality of living to the residents of Monmouth County.
“Monmouth County is truly the best place to live, work and visit. I look forward to continuing to oversee my departments and divisions,” Arnone said.
“It is an honor and a privilege to begin my second term as a member of the Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners and I would like to thank the residents of our great county for the opportunity to serve,” said DiRocco.
“As we begin a new year, I am looking forward to working alongside my colleagues to sharpen our focus on serving our residents in a highly effective and efficient manner so we can keep Monmouth County safe, prosperous and beautiful,” he said.
Prior to the selection of the board leadership, Arnone and Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden were sworn in to office by Superior Court Judge Joseph Oxley, and DiRocco was sworn in by Superior Court Judge
Gregory L. Acquaviva.
Arnone was sworn in to his fifth three-year term as a county commissioner and DiRocco was sworn in to his second three-year term. Golden was sworn in to his fifth three-year term
as sheriff, according to the press release.
“It is an honor to have been reelected to a fifth term as sheriff and I thank the residents for their continued support,” said Golden. “It’s my
privilege and duty to serve all who live, work or visit this great county, in the safest, most effective and efficient manner for another three years.
“Together with the Board of County Commissioners, we will continue to work on combating crime and strengthen our shared services and safety initiatives so Monmouth County remains one of the top counties in New Jersey,” he said.
The members of the Board of County Commissioners provided remarks about their roles within the county.
“Our community college, Brookdale Community College, has ranked in the top 3% of community colleges and one person I would like to recognize is Dr. David Stout,” Commissioner Lillian G. Burry said. “He was recently named to the top 25 most influential college presidents and we are very fortune to have him.”
“We have advanced in our programs and services beyond other counties and we have built a strong portfolio of services. This platform will be the ground we build on in 2023,” said Commissioner Susan M. Kiley.
“We have passionate employees and volunteers. We continue to find new ways to reach those residents who need our help. As a forward-thinking organization, Monmouth County will charge into 2023 with resolve. We have a tremendous base of services created here because of forward thinking,” Kiley said.
“It has truly been an honor for me to serve in a capacity of public service,” Commissioner Ross F. Licitra said. “I am delighted to be entering my third year as a commissioner. There is much to accomplish and I promise to continue to serve the residents to the best of my ability.”

Manginelli, Clay elected to leadership roles on Tinton Falls council
By ELIZABETH LYNCH Staff Writer
TINTON FALLS — Councilman John Manginelli has been elected by his fellow members of the Borough Council to serve as council president for 2023 in Tinton Falls.
The council held its reorganization meeting on Jan. 3 in the municipal building.
After Councilman Dr. Lawrence Dobrin nominated Manginelli for the position of council president, Councilwoman Risa Clay, Councilman Michael Nesci, Dobrin and Manginelli voted “yes.”
Councilwoman Tracy Buckley, who served as council president in 2022, abstained from the vote without comment.
“I am humbled and flattered I have been selected,” Manginelli said. “I want to take this time to thank Miss Buckley for the fantastic job she did.”
Buckley then nominated Clay to serve as deputy council president. A unanimous vote by the five council
members confirmed Clay’s election to the position for 2023.
Manginelli and Clay were sworn in to their leadership positions on the governing body by state Sen. Vin Gopal (D-Monmouth).
There was no municipal election in Tinton Falls in November. There will be a municipal election this year. The terms held by Buckley, Clay and Nesci will expire on Dec. 31.
The terms held by Manginelli and Dobrin will end on Dec. 31, 2025.
In other business during the reorganization meeting, Gopal presented a proclamation and announced that on Feb. 2, the state Senate will pay tribute and show its gratitude for the service of Tinton Falls Mayor Vito Perillo at the State House in Trenton.
Gopal said according to the Senate’s records, Perillo, 98, who is serving his second four-year term as mayor, is the oldest mayor in the United States.
“What is incredible about Vito is that he got elected in his 90’s,” Gopal said. “His service to his country is an inspiration as a World War II veteran.”
The proclamation will place Perillo in the state’s permanent records and history books, Gopal added.
Manginelli thanked Perillo for his service and said, “Don’t forget he is a World War II Navy veteran who fought in the last major battle in the Pacific.”
Perillo thanked Gopal for his kind words and requested an invitation to the Senate session at which he will be recognized. He thanked Buckley for her time and service as the council president.
In other action, the following individuals were appointed to the Planning Board: Daniel Romanov (oneyear term); Councilman Michael Nesci (one-year term); Joel Natter (threeyear term); and William F. Holobowski (two-year term).
Three individuals were nominated to the Historic Preservation Commission: Cooper Lewis (four-year term); Stacey Slowinski (four-year term); and David Tripold (two-year term as an alternate member).
Buckley recognized the borough’s emergency services personnel and reminded residents they may volunteer for local EMS squads or fire companies.
“They provide a vital service,” she said of those organizations.
When the meeting was opened to public comment, Gopal provided an update regarding what he said was the ongoing issue of car theft and vehicle break-ins in the Willowbrook neighborhood. He said one resident has been a victim three times.
The Monmouth County Park System is seeking entries into its Creative Arts Festival. This juried art show and sale is open to artists and fine crafters of every medium.
Those interested in entering are invited to submit images for consideration. The application fee is $15 per person. Rules and entry form are available at www.MonmouthCountyParks.com, according to a press release.
Accepted artists will have a 10-foot x 10-foot booth space to display and sell their original work for a fee. Indoor and outdoor spaces are available. The
Gopal said Police Chief Michael Delucia set up a monthly Zoom meeting to discuss the issue and invited residents of the neighborhood to attend.
Resident Joe Fama told the mayor and council members, “There were three (incidents) again over the New Year’s holiday, where intruders were caught on camera trying to enter vehicles on driveways.”
Fama asked for an update on the planned hiring of additional patrol officers for the Tinton Falls Police Department. He said the positions have been funded in the municipal budget.
Borough Administrator Charles Terefenko said officials are in the process of hiring officers and are also planning to hire several special law enforcement officers (part-time) to augment the police force.
When Fama asked for a timeline as to when patrol officers would be added to the force, Perillo said, “We will hire them when the police department and the police chief say we need them.”
Tinton Falls has 43 patrol officers. The council members recently adopted an ordinance that permits that number to increase to 48 patrol officers.
Nancyanne Fama, a former councilwoman, spoke on the same issue and said, “We are unsafe in our community. We cannot wait to have these thieves come into our development, trying the car doors, trying the backyard doors. We are just waiting for the moment that someone gets hurt.”
entry deadline is March 10.
The Creative Arts Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 13 at Thompson Park, Lincroft. The festival will feature fine art and craft vendors, live music, creative activities and food vendors.
Thompson Park is home to the park system’s Creative Arts Center, which hosts fine arts and craft classes throughout the year, including ceramics, pottery, jewelry and painting.

N.J. recorded environmental highlights in 2022
The year 2022 will go down in history as one defined by many challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic dragged into its third year, the war in Ukraine destabilized world security and finances, and record heat, droughts and storms again brought home the reality of a changing climate. New Jersey, like everywhere else, shared the pain.
Despite these difficulties, this state we’re in made encouraging progress in 2022 on environmental protection, conservation and outdoor recreation.
Highlights include reduced plastic pollution, a partial ban on pesticides that harm bees and other pollinators, a task force studying ways to boost protections for public forests, work to implement the Environmental Justice Act, steps to advance clean offshore wind and solar energy, and more.
Plastic bag ban –
gas emissions while providing critical habitat for wildlife, outdoor recreation, and clean air and water.
Yet the vast majority of New Jersey’s public forests are not adequately protected against inappropriate logging, over-browsing by deer and invasive species. In 2022, a Forest Stewardship Task Force was established to develop recommendations to the state Legislature to better protect and manage public forests.
• More offshore wind and solar energy – A key part of New Jersey’s climate action plan is a transition from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy.
2022, but still need to be adopted as soon as possible.
• Warehouse development – In 2022, New Jersey continued to see significant development of massive warehouses in many parts of the state, threatening prime farmland and communities already overburdened by pollution.
The State Planning Commission issued voluntary guidelines to help municipalities plan for warehouse development, but the state and municipalities are still lacking the tools needed to deal with this challenge.

MANAGING EDITOR Mark Rosman
In May, New Jersey’s ban on single-use plastic shopping bags went into effect. Thanks to the state’s 2020 Plastic Pollution Reduction Act, shoppers were required for the first time to supply their own reusable bags.
By the end of the first year, New Jersey will have avoided using an estimated 3.44 billion plastic bags and 68 million paper bags, preventing tons of waste from going into landfills and waterways.
• Protecting pollinators – In 2022, Gov. Phil Murphy signed the Save the Bees bill, which limits neonicotinoid pesticide applications in non-agricultural settings like gardens, lawns and golf courses.
“Neonics” don’t just kill insect pests; they also wipe out beneficial insects, including butterflies, wild native bees and domesticated honeybees. In turn, bird populations decline because of the loss of food sources.
While the new law is a positive step, neonics are still allowed in New Jersey for agricultural uses.
• Forest Task Force – Forests and other lands sequester and store about 9% of New Jersey’s annual greenhouse
The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities took a step forward in 2022 by implementing a new utility-scale solar program that will result in more clean energy while bringing down the costs of solar incentives and ensuring sound siting to protect important farmland soils and forests.
• “Outside Together” – New Jersey began working on the new Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan, which will set strategies for open space and recreation for the next five years and is required to maintain eligibility for funding from the National Park Service.
• Black Heritage Trail – A new state law signed in 2022 will establish a Black Heritage Trail linking landmarks, heritage sites, museums and attractions highlighting moments of political, military, artistic, cultural and social importance in the state’s Black history.
Despite this progress, New Jersey still has plenty of work to do on environmental and conservation issues:
• Environmental Justice Law – For years, New Jersey’s poor, urban, black and brown communities have borne the brunt of environmental contamination.
In 2020, Gov. Murphy signed the landmark Environmental Justice Act to help protect overburdened communities. Rules implementing the act were introduced in the summer of
• Fixing state parks – In 2022, a partnership of conservation organizations – including New Jersey Conservation Foundation – launched the “Fix Our Parks” campaign highlighting the need for more funding and stronger enforcement to protect New Jersey’s state park system.
A report commissioned by the Pinelands Preservation Alliance found that state parks are underfunded, understaffed and facing threats from illegal off-road vehicle use and dumping. The Governor and Legislature should make increased funding a priority in the upcoming budget.
• Flood prevention – In 2022, the state Department of Environmental Protection published draft rules to better protect communities from flooding from extreme storms, like the remnants of Hurricane Ida in 2021. The public comment period ends on Feb. 3.
If adopted as written, the new rules will raise flood plain elevations by 2 feet, making it harder to build in areas near rivers and streams, protecting lives and property.
To learn more about the inland flood rules or to make a comment, go to https://dep.nj.gov/inland-floodprotection-rule/
Please continue to make your voices heard in 2023 on the need for our elected officials to address these pressing issues.

Eatontown Patrolman Ryan Hennelly featured in podcast episode
EATONTOWN — Ryan Hennelly, a patrolman in the Eatontown Police Department and a master trainer for Law Enforcement Against Drugs and Violence (LEAD), joined the sixth episode of “A Police Officer You Should Know with Joe Piscopo.”
The podcast series, hosted by Joe Piscopo, highlights police officers across the United States who, during the school day, teach the curriculum implemented by LEAD, a nationwide nonprofit organization that works with communities to help students understand the dangers of drugs and violence, according to a press release.
Hennelly has been involved with LEAD since the inception of the program, instructing sixth-graders at the Margaret L. Vetter School.
Teaching the program allows him to work with the students on strengthening their goal setting, decision making and communication skills, in addition to helping them understand why avoiding drugs and violence is vital,
according to the press release.
LEAD has a proven effective, law enforcement-focused, anti–drug, anti–violence curriculum for K-12 students in the United States, according to the press release.
The program provides services “on the street” and “in the classroom,” bringing communities and police forces closer together. There are 3,000 trained instructors in 41 states who teach the “in the classroom” program, which is taught over 10 weeks to educate students on how they can make smart decisions without drugs or violence.
In the podcast episode, Hennelly shares his experience as a master trainer for LEAD, in which he coaches police officers throughout the country to become instructors for the organization.
“I have been blessed to travel across the country to states such as Nevada and Tennessee, to name a couple, to train police officers to teach the pro -
gram in their respective areas.
“The organization has been expanding so it can be implemented in areas where children and communities desperately need the proven effective curriculum and it is exciting to be part of that process,” he said.
Through his role as a police officer and his involvement in LEAD for several years, Hennelly discusses how he gets to deal with people firsthand who have used drugs and analyze the dangerous substances that destroy families.
“I have been able to understand that the pressure from a significant other is a large reason why people get involved in drugs in the first place.
“People want to be accepted and loved by their boyfriend or girlfriend, and if that person introduces them to a harmful substance, it is likely they will feel pressured to try it. We need to discuss this concept as part of the LEAD curriculum even more,” he said.
Also discussed in the podcast epi -
sode is the LEAD Fest Carnival in Eatontown, which was held for the second time in June and will return in 2023, according to the press release.
“The week-long event has awesome food and rides, and it takes place right after we host a graduation for our LEAD students, so they get free admission,” said Hennelly. “We greatly appreciate our partnership with LEAD and we are excited for the carnival to come back as it is a huge fundraiser for our program in Eatontown.”

Harris, Hicks, Biasi spark Falcons over Matawan; key player out injured
By STEVEN BASSIN Staff Writer
TINTON FALLS — The Monmouth Regional High School girls basketball team carried a 9-2 record into its Shore Conference C South Division matchup with Jackson Liberty High School on Jan. 17 in Jackson.
“It has been rewarding to have a group that has totally bought into everything we do and to see the love and appreciation they have for each other as teammates,” sixth-year coach Laura Forbes said of her players. “They are a hard-working group of really good human beings. It’s great to see them be proud of their product.”
One setback the players have had to overcome is the recent loss of junior forward Mia Troese, who injured her knee during a 43-39 victory over Dono -
van Catholic High School of Toms River on Jan. 12 and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
This is the second straight season Troese will be sidelined with a knee injury.
Before she sustained the injury, Troese was a force to be reckoned with as she was averaging more than 11 points per game and had contributed 53 rebounds, 24 steals and 23 assists.
“Your heart hurts for her,” Forbes said of Troese’s season-ending injury. “She is a great kid. She missed all of last year and came back and was starting to feel good again. You feel bad for her.”
Now the Falcons will try to “rally for Mia,” the coach said.
Sophomore forward Amaya Harris stepped up in a big way for the Falcons in their first game without Troese when they took the court against Mat-
awan Regional High School on Jan. 13 in Aberdeen Township.
Harris scored 12 points to lead the team and added two assists and three steals as Monmouth Regional defeated the Huskies, 35-17.
“It was a good win. It was tough losing one of our best players, but we were able to pull it together and get this win,” Harris said. “You have to keep in it mentally and pick each other up.”
The 2022-23 campaign has been a breakout season for Harris, who is averaging more than 10 points per game. She leads the team with 70 rebounds and 15 blocked shots.
Speaking about her strong performance against Matawan, Harris said, “I’m getting better with staying in (the game) mentally. I’m not checking out when things don’t go my way. I’m staying in it by cheering on my teammates
and communicating with them more on the court to help keep us together.”
Junior forward Kate Hicks scored 10 points in the Falcons’ victory over Matawan and pulled down six rebounds.
In the backcourt, junior guard Julia Biasi put together an all-around performance against the Huskies. Biasi scored two points and added nine rebounds, four assists and five steals.
Senior guard Alyson Amadruto scored five points and pulled down five rebounds in the victory.
Seniors Olivia Hartman and Kamlyn Bevacqua, and juniors Kasey Chunko and Olivia Gades will have bigger roles to fill now that Troese is out with her injury.
“The most important thing is for us to stay tough and stay together. We have proved we are tough and we have to take that to the next level,” Forbes said.

CASA for Children of Monmouth brings hope to children in foster care
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children of Monmouth is looking forward to 2023 and the joy the new year will hopefully bring with it.
CASA of Monmouth finished 2022 with gifts for nearly 200 foster children who are in the county child welfare system. Through the CASA of Monmouth annual holiday wish list, foster children served by CASA advocates received gifts to celebrate the holidays, according to a press release. Every year, CASA of Monmouth looks to fulfill the wishes from the children served by the program. This effort is undertaken through the generosity of CASA volunteers, CASA staff, the CASA Executive Board, community members and local business sponsors.
This was the sixth year in a row the designers of Town & Country Design Studio, Red Bank, decorated gift bags and filled them with presents for the foster children. Their designers personally decorated bags that brought happiness to more than 100 children, according to the press release.
“The holiday season is always a time to open our hearts, and our community and volunteers did not disappoint the foster children we serve so they can experience the joy every child deserves during the holidays,” said Marielaina LaRosa, director of community development.
“We generate a wish list with three or four items for each child and share it through our social media. We were overwhelmed by the immediate re -
sponse. The magic of the season took on a life of its own after that. Our supporters should know they brought tears of joy to these very special children with every donation,” LaRosa said.
Court Appointed Special Advocates are trained volunteers from the community who work with children in the child welfare system who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect, according to the press release.
Advocates are assigned to the foster children by a Family Court judge to advocate for the needs of the children and to work toward a permanent safe home.
Advocates meet with the children monthly or more often to check on
their well-being and to provide reports to the court. The advocates work to ensure the children do not fall through the cracks of the child welfare system, according to the press release.
The ultimate goal of the CASA program is always reunification with a child’s family if it is safe – or other caring relatives or foster parents ready to adopt.
CASA for Children of Monmouth will begin training a new class of advocates in March to be the “voice” for a child in foster care. For more information about becoming an advocate or donating to foster children, call 732-460-9100 or visit www.casaofmonmouth.org.
Health Sciences Institute graduates ready to begin nursing careers
The Health Sciences Institute, at the Brookdale Community College Nursing Pinning Ceremony on Jan. 3, recognized the accomplishments of 59 nursing graduates.
Student speaker and nursing graduate Taylor Soave applauded Brookdale faculty and staff “for getting us all to this milestone in our lives. They were there every step of the way to guide us in the right direction and provide encouragement.
“Brookdale lived up to its expectations by ensuring student success. The faculty and staff truly care about each and every one of their students and wanted us to be successful in our time here. They helped shape us and taught us core values and how important it is to be passionate,” Soave said.
Brookdale President David M. Stout addressed the nursing graduates and thanked them for making Brookdale proud of their hard work, perseverance and selflessness in dedicating their lives to helping others, according to a press release.
The graduating nurses will also participate in Brookdale’s 52nd commencement ceremonies on May 11, in addition to the pinning ceremony, a tradition in the healthcare field.
“The pin links you to all the alumni of this program who have gone forward to be among the very best
nurses in this country,” said Dr. Jayne Edman, dean of the Health Sciences Institute. “The pin is meant to serve as a reminder that you are entering the most trusted profession in the United States.”
“You are an extraordinary group as you began nursing school during a pandemic,” said guest speaker Georgia Cassidy, Instructor of Nursing at Brookdale. “And you are beginning your professional nursing career at a time when our world needs nurses more than ever.”
Nursing graduate Monica Bubello gave the farewell address, celebrating with her peers the limitless love they can provide in their careers, according to the press release.
“The people that sit in front of me are not just colleagues and classmates, these people are my friends. Because you just have to be after all we have been through together. I am so proud of my friends tonight, in our navy blue scrubs ready to take on the world,” Bubello said.
During the ceremony, six graduates were recognized for being in the Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society, Alpha Sigma Chapter: Mirlande Fils-Aimee, Shannon Foley-Vonheeder, Lindsay Kelly, Roxanne Rosa, Megan Seyler and Alisha Womack.
Special recognition went out to nursing graduate Cherrelle Rainey
and her grandmother, who graduated in the first nursing class at Brookdale and attended the pinning ceremony
to encourage and cheer for her granddaughter, according to the press release.
